Club Facilities Update

Gorge Soccer Association

Continued Improvement / Development of our Facilities ...

A new roof was put on the Gorge Fieldhouse June 6th.  A huge thanks to:

Parker Johnson Roofing for the donation of materials and arranging the bin for old material removal

* DL's Bins & Recycling Centre for the donation of a bin, removal and recycling of the old roofing material

* Gorge's O35B Team + O40's for donating their morning for removal and installation of roof.


New gutters have been installed on both our clubhouse and the Lorne Jones building (Gorge equipment room)

Victoria Gutters for supplying materials and labour to replace our badly needed gutters

Please think about supporting these companies next time you need roofing, gutters and/or materials removed.



Gorge Loses Another Builder/Alumnus

Gorge Soccer Association

Lloyd  (Tiger) Strickland passed away June 10, 2015, he would have turned 99 in October. Lloyd was a long time Manager with both the Juvenile and Senior Gorge teams. He was a true Character and a Entertainer at all times, Lloyd was the oldest Gorge Oldtimer.

For Lloyd's past work with the club, Gorge had named a Youth Trophy after Lloyd - The Loyd Strickland Award for Outstanding Boys Junior (u12-U14) MVP.

Gorge's thoughts are with Lloyd's family and friends.
